Maren Showkeir is a writer, editor, teacher, and yogini. She is the co-author, with her late husband, Jamie, of Yoga Wisdom at Work: Finding Sanity Off the Mat and On the Job (Berrett-Koehler, 2013); and AuthenticConversations: Moving from Manipulation to Truth and Commitment (Berrett-Koehler, 2008). She earned a BA degree in journalism from Arizona State University and a MA in Human and Organization Development at Fielding Graduate University. Her life-long passion for writing led her to a fabulous career in newspaper journalism — remember newspapers? — where she had extraordinary experiences for nearly 25 years as a reporter and senior editor. In 2003-2004, she was awarded a Knight Fellowship for the International Center for Journalists and taught journalism at universities in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and Lima, Peru. While there, Maren also collaborated with South American journalists to provide educational workshops in rural provinces for reporters and editors who had few opportunities for formal training. By accident, she managed to exit the newspaper industry in the nick of time. In 2005, she joined the consulting firm henning-showkeir & associates, inc. as a managing partner, where she collaborated with people in all types and sizes of organizations managing complex organizational change. Since 2015, she has focused on writing, editing, and coaching writers who want to create clear, concise, and compelling content that connects with their intended audiences. She is a mother of two, and a grandmother of three. Maren also is a certified yoga instructor and has been a practitioner for more than 25 years.
